Boreham Wood Football Club began a brand new fund raising initiative, at our recent fixture against Wealdstone and we are happy to say it went down a storm.
The clubs community department after discussions with two local youth football clubs, created a money making initiative that we believed would be beneficial for both parties. The idea was a very simple one and one that would help many of our local youth clubs.
So whether you’re a local youth club running, Cubs, Scouts, Athletics, Gymnastics. Rugby or football or others not mentioned. We want you to get in touch with us and if we can, we’ll help any local youth club but it will need you participation..
It is hoped that with Boreham Wood FC, now sitting top of the league and with promotion to the Conference National Football a distinct possibility, that people will want to come and support their local team. We hope our initiative will attract youngster fans, more families, more adults and in truth get more people through the turnstiles.
So if you run a local youth club or you manage a local youth team, then we’ll ensure we’ll make it beneficial to your club or team but you have to help us, to help you..
As we said at the start of this article, our initiative is a very simple one.. For every club or team manager that participates, Boreham Wood Football Club, will give each club match tickets to sell to their parents, at a reduced rate of £10, which is a £3 reduction on the normal £13 entrance fee.
There is a real bonus in the £10 adult match ticket offer and that is that the match day ticket, also entitles ‘FREE’ entry, for up to two children aged under 16 saving you a further £12..
So where we hear you ask, will your youth club or team benefit with additional funds??? Well on top of the £10 adult ticket and ‘FREE’ entry for two children under 16. Every £10 Adult ticket purchased by your local club or team, will result in Boreham Wood FC donating £4 back to your participating youth club or team.
Our first attempt at doing anything like this, as we said only occurred at the recent home game against Wealdstone. The incentive simply worked so well, that In total 53 Tickets were purchased and that resulted in £212 being donated back into our local community clubs and It gave the opportunity for over 80 kids to come down, see our new stand, enjoy our facilities, watch our improved team and enjoy some Conference South action and a late ‘WOOD’ victory.
Our manager Ian Allinson said “it was great to have the youth football clubs and kids here with us and it definitely made a difference. Perhaps that’s the reason we scored two late goals, including our 90th minute winner? It was a lovely feeling though to send over 300 Wood fans delirious at the end, going home happy and the win put us top of the league, so it was a great day all round”..
With such a positive response, the Chairman has decided to run another of these LOCAL YOUTH CLUB FUNDRAISERS, for our next home game on against Gosport on Saturday, 22nd November. So should your local club or team wish to participate, please contact our Community Manager Charlie Hunter for further details on the club number 0208 953 5097 for further details and earn your club or team some much needed funds, we’ll be only too pleased to help..
